Skylanders: Swap Force is a platformer video game developed by Vicarious Visions/Beenox and published by Activision for the Wii. It is the third main game in the Skylanders video game and toy franchise, following 2012's Skylanders: Giants, which was a direct sequel to 2011's Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure.

The gameplay for Swap Force is based on the two previous games. Players use a portal to bring real life action figures into the video game. However, Skylanders are now able to jump, and they have exchangeable top and bottom halves that allows the player to mix and match. Because of the new features, a new Portal of Power is required and Swap Force is only available as a starter pack.



Dolphin is currently not capable of emulating USB connectivity, preventing Dolphin from communicating with a Skylander Portal, which is used for placing the Skylander toys to play as the characters. Therefore, it won't work. See issue 5153.

Cinematic Flickering

Pre-rendered cinema scenes have a green tint and flicker severely. Use EFB to Ram to correct this. See issue 6972.


This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
